Swimming From Home Talk Show: Kathleen Baker on Not Bottling your Emotions

We are all trying to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic as best we can. Staying at home and not socializing is not an easy task for anyone, and keeping a swimmer out of the pool is equally antagonizing.

Baker speaks about being able to process all of this, and how it has been important for her to learn not to bottle her emotions, so that she can recognize and work through them.
